Focus on Safety in Adams County
Moundview Memorial Hospital and the Adams County Departments of Aging and Public Health worked with local police and EMS to implement a multifaceted community safety program. Building on a previous planning grant, the coalition addressed several safety issues in the county with a variety of programs, including babysitting and bike and scooter safety courses and trauma care instruction for EMS and emergency room staff. The coalition also established a pediatric death review committee. This project was made possible by a 2012-13 Rural Community Grant from the Wisconsin Office of Rural Health.
